We’re called Q’Apel for the Qu’Appelle River, a waterway that winds through Saskatchewan, Canada. Why? Because this pristine river charts a winding path, full of twists, turns, and straightaways alike. That’s what we do, too. Our cutting-edge products—neurological catheters, specifically—are designed to navigate the twists and turns of the brain’s neurovasculature, empowering therapeutic thrombectomy and cerebral aneurysm devices to deliver life-changing outcomes.
Site experience and outcomes in the Trevo Acute Ischemic Stroke (TRACK) Multicenter Registry.
September 1, 2019
Abstract, via the American Heart Association Journal:
A strong correlation between procedural volumes and clinical outcomes has been established for many highly specialized and time-dependent medical treatments including percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) and high-risk surgical procedures.
A previous analysis has suggested that outcomes after endovascular intervention for large vessel occlusion strokes (LVOS) are highly influenced by center volumes. However, this analysis predates the large-scale use of stent retrievers that have been demonstrated to have a steep learning curve and, therefore, may be less dependent on individual operator/center experience.
We studied the relationship between site volumes and outcomes in the Trevo Acute Ischemic Stroke (TRACK) multicenter registry with the aim to evaluate whether endovascular treatment at high-volume stroke centers, as compared with low-volume stroke centers, is associated with improvement in clinical outcomes and other performance metrics.
